There are many teenagers in Calcutta who live in slums, unhealthy urban districts, that lack the most basic sanitation and sanitary facilities.
Lavazza and Save the Children have committed themselves to creating opportunities for the most marginalised adolescents from degraded areas, saving them from conditions of abuse and exploitation, with the aim of introducing them into the world of employment in a sustainable way.
The project allowed us to reach over 101 vulnerable teenagers and offer them 240 hours of
training and subsequent support for inclusion in the world of work.
In October 2017, moreover, Lavazza made its trainers available to teach the project's beneficiaries the basic techniques to become barista and to gain a more in-depth knowledge of the world of coffee.
